The Jane is a great place for a short stop in NYC. I had four nights here in a single room and it was comfortable and clean with attentive and welcoming staff. The share bathrooms are kept spotless and I never once had to wait for a shower. I don't know if I timed it right but I went to shower around 8.00am each day and no problem. I guess the early risers may well have showered before sleep or had already showered and the party goers and bar hoppers were still asleep. The area is spoilt for choice for good cafés and restaurants. For breakfast I'd recommend Grounded down the road. The best burgers and some of the cheapest beers in NYC are at The Corner Bistro, also just down the road, one of the last old time unchanged bohemian bars in the rapidly gentrifying West Village area. Don't miss out on a visit to it. If you are a Dylan Thomas fan you can toast him in The White Horse where he had his fateful last drink, also just around the corner.
Yes, the single rooms are small but the beds are super comfortable and who is spending all day in your room in NYC anyway? The rooms have free cable tv/DVD player; a radio/iPod charger; the hotel has bikes to use for free and they will lend you an iPad or laptop for whilst you're here, gratis. What's not to like?

the setting is very special and the view from the bathroom is wonderfull, the room is very small and narrow as if your in a 3th class cabin of an old cruise ship, but convenient, the staf is very friendly and helpfull. The room has no view, and the bar/restaurant doesn't really match with the setting and the atmosphere of the hotel, could be coster.

Room Tip: Go for the larger room, but also more expensive, we hed the cabin with two bunkers.

I had a one night stop over in new York and was looking for somewhere cheap but interesting that I could explore from. the Jane provided exactly that, it's history as a seafarer's hostel and as the place that the titanic survivors were housed when they reached NY gave it plenty of talking points and these were perfectly reflected in the design and décor.

The rooms felt like cabins on an old ocean going liner and the place oozed history. You have to be happy to share bathrooms but these were kept clean and tidy and created shared conversation spaces which was a nice way to meet people from all over the world who were willing to give this interesting establishment a go.

The staff were helpful and friendly and I would stay again if I'm in NY for a day or two again, anything longer than that and the cabin style rooms would feel a bit cramped I think

If you're just looking for somewhere to sleep and store your stuff- the Jane is perfect. The rate is much lower than other places as the rooms are tiny and you share a bathroom but this suited us just fine. The location is good as it is close to bars and restaurants but the subway stop is a ten minute walk. Not for everyone.

I loved staying in this hotel!! It is quirky and bohemian - and wonderful. The rooms are tiny - so you have to know what you are getting into - but the great linens, pillows, robe and towel make it feel nice and while you have to share showers it was clean and wonderful - great soap and shampoo and ample hot water. The restaurant in the hotel is wonderful - I had a great salmon salad and the BEST mint tea I have ever had in a hotel. They have bikes you can use for free and it was great to take a leisurely ride along the river and helpful to run errands. I will definitely stay here again!!

Room Tip: I asked for a quiet room and got one - I have heard some say that some are noisy - mine was quiet and great.
